That's a very surprising thing to hear, but I wouldn't give it ANY credence without actually seeing embassy notifications and such. It would obviously show a negative change in attitude by the VN gov't to long(ish) stays by foreigners in the country and would have a very substantial effect on many of them, so if anyone can confirm this abrupt and confusing change that has been mentioned, please provide links, etc.   

I just got a one year multi entry tourist visa today.  $35US to the visa company and $135US at the airport on entry. I'm not aware of any issues.

Are you American? I hear only Yanks can get one year visa (which is needed to open a bank account).

 

Cant see anyone moving to Vietnam permanently if you cannot open a bank account cuz you cannot get a one year visa.

 

Anyone got further info?

A few replys have been total BS, I just received my 3 month visa for this winter, and I paid $100 not $250 to extend last year.

Yes, he must be American.  They are currently the only ones who can get a 1 year visa, but 1 year visas will return for other nationalities in the future.

 

You can open a bank account on a 3 month visas.

This is one of the bigger online visa agents.
 
They are still offering 3 month multiple entry visa on arrival for $43 to the agent, and $50 to immigration at the airport.
 
I checked a couple of others and they are also still offering 3 month multiple entry visas.

You can't just do it on arrival?

And we complain about ever changing Thai regulations.... not so different elsewhere is it. Totally unpredictable and unstable.

 

And to think that the Yanks bombed the <deleted> out of the place... yet they are the ones getting the 1 year visa?

Which leaves out VN for me if I decide to relocate. 

 

Cambodia offer 1 year visas and has done so for several years.

Visa extensions are much easier to obtain in Vietnam hence the exodus.

So you have to visit immigration every 2-3 month?  or just use an agent, and how much to extend.

You can't just do it on arrival?

You do sort of get it on arrival, but you need to arrange an "Invitation" (IIRC it is or at least was called a "Letter of Invitation") from an online "Agent" before you arrive.

 

Process goes, you contact one of the online agencies, pay them the $43 and they send you the paperwork to visit Vietnam, then when you arrive in Vietnam, you pay $50 and get your 3 month Visa. 

 

Not too long ago you had to do this to enter the country anyway, nowadays there is limited visa exempt (As I Brit I think it's 14 days but you're only allowed to do it once within a certain number of months, 3 or 4).


My 1st trip to Vietnam (2008) never happened as me & my mate rocked up at Changi airport and with no Visa or Letter of Invitation were rejected at check-in, fortunately this was in the days where we were PPS (SIngapore AIrlines Privileged Flyer Scheme) members so a quick visit to SIA ticket desk & $10 had us on a flight to Phuket within the hour (love Changi airport).
